Badhaai Do will be helmed by Harshavardhan Kulkarni who directed 2015’s Hunterrr. Confirming the development to TOI, he said, am super excited to be a part of this franchise. Family comedies are evergreen and the idea is to create wholesome entertainment that can be enjoyed with the entire family. Our pre-production work is in full swing and we will start filming in January.”
